Today I’m off to see Robbie Williams at St Marys Stadium….. Whoop de doo some of you may think and actually, I’m neither a lover nor a hater of his. But a very good friend is a fan and we decided to take advantage of him playing in our home city.
Having grown up through the height of the IRA terrorist attacks, I’ve never really thought twice about attending any large public events. I have a kind of, if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen, attitude. And I don’t believe in letting the fanatical few dictate how I live my life.
But… and this is a big one. Today, after recent attacks in London, Manchester and across the world, I am a little anxious.
And this morning, I squeezed my little girls a little tighter than normal.
